Matte & glossy - Artsy Wednesday

 
This week's theme in Artsy Wednesday is matte & glossy. The base color is the matte China Glaze Stone Cold from the Colors of the Capitol Collection, and I love that one coater. The golden pattern I created with a dotting tool and Orly Glitz & Glamour. I was pretty happy with the result.
Notice how visible my ridges are (and I do use a ridge filler base coat) - Seche Vite is helping me with a much better end result, but a top cat wasn't an option in this mani :)
Remember my giveaway that is open later today!
Check out what the other girls in Artsy Wednesday did in this weeks challenge
Michelle - Lab Muffin,  Alanna - Pretty Purple Polish, Tif - Polished Genious, Lyndsey - Nails by Ms. Lizard, Catrine - Unnakednails, Melanie - Nail & Polish, Jessica - Beauty Gnome, (not this week: Kamen - Kaka Beauty Blog)
We are very sad to say goodbye to Holly with her lovely blog Hooked, but different circumstances has made it difficult for her to find the time in the future.... 

Udfordringen i denne uges Artsy Wednesday er mat & skinnende.  Grundfarven er China Glaze Stone Cold fra Colors from the Capitol kollektionen, og jeg er vild med den etlags lak. Det gyldne mønster malede jeg ved hjælp af et dotting tool og Orly Glitz & Glamour. Jeg var godt tilfreds med spillet mellem mat og skinnende.
Husk at min giveaway starter senere i dag!
